How to get the perfect boho style


 

#1 / Add texture!

The main idea behind the boho style is to make any room inviting, relaxed and comfortable. Now, could you think to a better way to achieve it rather than adding texture? Taking in mind that the best motto of the boho style could be “more is more”, indulge yourself in hanging tapestry, layering throws over your furniture, mixing patterns and getting some crazy and colourful pillows (macrame, linen, west African fabrics like wax or  Malian mud-cloths)  and piling them on your sofa or bed.

#2 / Low level seatings

Low level seats are great in a boho environment because they immediately transmit the desire to crouch and relax for a while for a cup of tea or for a simple chat. Floor pillows, leather poufs, soft ottomans, coffee tables like the bamileke from Cameroon and bean bag chairs are all great ingredients that can’t just miss in your personal boho space.

#1 / Keep it light!

Dark tones just do not fit within a boho house; prefer instead clear nuances and hues both as the main background colour of your walls and as the predominant tone of your furniture; clear or bleached woods are the best because they provide airiness and a clean backdrop for all the patterns and textures that you will be adding.

#4 / Introduce plants

Plants, any sort of plant especially cactus, will produce effortlessly a “jungley” natural good vibe that will illuminate any room. Showcase your plants in beautiful and handmade planters (what about West African baskets ?) to enhance the overall funky effect.

#5 / The right lighting

How to get the perfect boho style

The aim here is to recreate an intimate and romantic atmosphere, so avoid having a single (and brutal) source of light; play instead with all of your candles, string lights lanterns and funky chandeliers; pendant lamps, especially raffia and macramé ones, are a must!

#6 / Lots of rugs!

The options here are endless: old Moroccan carpets, raffia carpets and vintage rugs of any sort, they all work perfectly, especially when they are layered, for a more gipsy and eclectic look.

#7 / Do not forget…

Last, do not forget incorporating some unusual and original elements in your design. 

Think about those single stunning and eye-catching pieces that is impossible not to note (yes, I am thinking to one of those beautiful hand beaded Yoruba chair !). Place them strategically, with the right amount of light behind: the wow effect is guaranteed.
